    • Dragon Master Lance
    -- Requesting that the applicant have a good understanding of Lance's character/history before applying.
    • Ash Ketchum
    -- We'll talk out the details of his past and his present, but I'd like if you knew a little about him. I'll be letting you decide who he married, if anyone.
    • Kamon (aka Silver)
    -- The rival from Silver. He'll be acquainted with my main character, and probably will also be a rival of Lance's still.
    • OC who will work side by side with legendary pokemon arceus, dialga, and palkia.
    • I also need an oc who will be a monster/human creature of sorts to work with another of my characters.
    • Other OCs
    -- We always welcome people to create their own characters :3

    Roleplay Type: Freeform group roleplay, extreme.
    Genre: Fandom, fantasy, action/adventure, drama, and some science fiction

    Literacy Level: Intermediate-Advanced

    Character Creation/Application FAQ


    I'm fairly new to Elliquiy, but I am an avid role-player, having done so for years. I am looking for other RPers with the will to commit and an interest in pokemon. If you would like to get an idea of how I write/play you're welcome to observe a related writing sample of mine.

    What I expect of you: Literacy is great, but you don't need to post a dozen paragraphs to please me. All that I really want is...

    Post your best. As long as your heart is in it and you provide at least some detail and enough for me to respond to, you and I will be able to make an exciting story together. One that will be rewarding for both of us, that we can take pride in.

    Don't vanish without a trace. If you apply for the RP, try to stay with it. I don't necessarily need you to watch it constantly, but at least post on a regular basis. That could even mean once a day or once every other day. Whatever works for you. However, I do understand that sometimes real life situations arise that take precedence over RPing. If that happens, and you are unable to post regularly or have to leave the rp, PLEASE LET ME KNOW so that we can work your character out of the story.

    Respect me, yourself, and others. I will afford you the same courtesy, and if you ever feel like I am not doing so, please tell me and I will amend the way I am behaving.

    Don't G-mod. This should be self-explanatory, but if it's not, there will be more detail when the RP is created and the Official Rules are instated.

    Have fun. If you're not having fun, why RP in the first place? x3


    What you can expect of me:

    Detailed posts. I love to write, and love to share my writing with others. I may not write massive posts 100% of the time, but anything you get will be the best that I can give.

    Flexible guidance. I'm very accustomed to being an RP leader, and my philosophy about RPs is this: The leader--in this case me--should have a firm grasp of the base story in order that the others have a general path to follow, but be flexible enough to go along with the ideas of others. This allows for a group RP to truly work together to create a community amongst themselves where everyone fits in and can influence the outcome of the RP's progression.

    Regularity. I'll be here posting as long as there is at least one other person whose heart and soul is truly in the story. Some days I may post more than others, but you can be certain that as long as you're here, I'm here with you and I'm not going to abandon you.

    Understanding.
    As long as you are open with me and respect your fellow RPers, I will always do my best to accommodate you and make sure you feel welcome in the RP, because you are.



    Synopsis from the perspective of the Incarnus:

    "The world is dominated by pokemon and pokemon enthusiasts. Trainers and the like have encouraged living with pokemon for hundreds if not thousands of years, and now the monsters are an integral part of society. Few people could imagine life without them...fewer still would actually want that.

    But there is a sinister irony in this precious bond between human and monster. While the world goes on and life seemingly grows better and better through the recruitment of these beasts, the unity between the souls of the creatures and those of the humans is ensnaring the human world in a web of evil--one that will consume them all. For this world suffers from a cancerous darkness that has been growing in its very core since the dawn of humanity on this planet--a tremendous and nearly formless demon with the intent of possessing every living being and drawing them in to become a part of himself.

    As it stands, the pokemon that the humans so deeply love, while they may not be demons themselves, are storehouses for the demon's soul and massive power. His dark spirit lays dormant within them most of the time, but lends them the powers that they wield in battle--the very powers that their trainers seek to strengthen. While humans unwittingly enhance the demonic power, so too do they entrench themselves in the claws of the evil itself. The more they become attached to their monsters, the more the monsters become attached to them. The more the monsters become attached to them, the stronger the link between the demon and the humans becomes. Soon the humans--like everything else on the planet--will be nothing but vessels for the power of the darkness.

    Once that happens, there will be no saving the human race. They shall perish, to become puppets, slaves, monsters themselves.....or even mere fodder for the demon king to devour and grow. It has happened once before. I watched an entire world fall into endless darkness.

    I will not let that happen again. Those who side with me may die....but those who stand against me will.

    It is time to break the bonds, time to upend society. And when all is said and done, every monster will be dead. Including me."



    I am now taking questions about this RP and asking for those who are interested to give me their comments/concerns. Because this is to be a long term RP, I strongly suggest asking your questions and voicing your ideas before committing permanently, that way if you find out something that you don't like, you don't have to find yourself running out on the group.

    Ask away!

    Re: Seeking Permanent Participants for a [Darker] Pokemon Story
    « Reply #1 on: September 18, 2011, 12:06:37 AM »
    Note: I would greatly appreciate it if you asked at least a few questions before submitting your application. As this is meant to be a long term RP, I want to be sure that everyone who applies is willing to commit and comfortable with the RP situation. If you apply and need to withdraw participation, please let us know before you quit. Additionally I ask that, if your character becomes an integral part of the story and you need to leave, that you work out a way to remove your character in the story as well (such as having them die or have a personal issue to attend, etc. Please don't just up and vanish.)

    About Alliances
    As part of your application, you'll be choosing your character's starting alliance. To help you decide who you want to side with, here are the descriptions of current possibilities.

    Incarnus: They wish to destroy pokemon, the infected planet, and completely change society by freeing the human race from their allegiance to monsters and sending the humans to another world.

    Society: Wishes to maintain the relations between pokemon and humans, does not believe in the demon king, and desire to defend the world from the wrath of the incarnus and his followers.

    CELL: A secretive organization bent on severing human/monster relations. Some believe that monsters should all die, others simply believe they should be outcast and that training should be outlawed. In contrast to the Incarnus, CELL wishes to preserve the world, and they believe that the incarnus is the root of all evil--the epitomy of why monsters should not be welcome among humans.

    Darkness: The slaves of the demon king. Includes possessed humans, shadow pokemon, and dark entities/demons such as missingno. Their ultimate goal is to woo society to further ensnare them and to utterly destroy the incarnus and his followers.


    Human Application Form

    Character Name:
    Gender: Male, female, or trans.
    Sexual Orientation:
    Kinks: Any sexual interests or quirks that aren't exactly traditional? Go ahead and explain.
    Age: No characters under 18.
    Skills/Occupation: Everybody has talents, a job, or a life calling. Mention it here.
    Physical Description/Image: Pictures of your character are optional but provide a good visual. If you cannot provide a picture, simply describe your character in detail. Eyes, hair, skin, clothes, height, etc.
    Alliance:

    Pokemon Team: If any. Max # of monsters with you at any time is 6. If you change your team, make sure you update it here. No legendaries unless we discussed it and it was approved beforehand.

    Personality: Tell us about your character's unique perspective and how they respond to situations.

    Bio: Tell us a little bit about your character's past and how they got to where they are today.


    Monster Application Form


    Note: If you decide to play with one of your main characters as a monster, your character's ability to communicate is limited to body language, psychic ability, and/or whether or not the darkness has corrupted you enough to give you the power of speech.

    Character Name:
    Species: May be an existing pokemon species or one you create. If you create your own species, be sure to provide detail about it.
    Type: Fire, water, grass, etc. Will help us know your weaknesses and strengths.
    Gender: Male, female, or hermaphrodite.
    Sexual Preference: May include an interest in humans.
    Kinks: Any sexual interests or quirks that aren't exactly traditional? Go ahead and explain.

    Physical Description/Image: Pictures of your character are optional but provide a good visual. If you cannot provide a picture, simply describe your character in detail.

    Example Applications/My Characters

    Character Name: Ace
    Species: Incarnus
    Type: Depends on his form. Hawkhart (phoenix) -- Fire/Flying, Diamagon (dragon) -- Dragon/Water, Wulfspade (white wolf) -- Electric, Ace of Spades (demon wolf) -- Dark, Human Form -- Fighting/Steel
    Gender: Hermaphrodite, but prefers to be referred to as male.
    Sexual Preference: Bisexual with no interest in monsters.
    Kinks: Powerful affinity for humans. Normally extremely dominant. Known to engage in non-con. Enjoys delivering oral and anal. Strong fetish for urine play.
    Experience: Very High.
    Ability: Depends on his form. Hawkhart (phoenix) -- Flash Fire, Diamagon (dragon) -- Levitate, Wulfspade (white wolf) -- Lightningrod, Ace of Spades (demon wolf) -- Shadow Tag, Human Form -- Magic Bounce
    Physical Description/Image:


    Alliance: Incarnus
    Personality: Noble, regal, idealistic, and extremely serious when it comes to matters of opposing the darkness and protecting humankind. He can be grim, moody, and brooding when this sits at the center of his thoughts. From time to time, the burden he bears can wear on him, and he may become tired emotionally and rather melancholy.

    Fortunately for him and everyone around him, he usually makes a conscious effort to remain positive, and despite everything, he normally comes across as oddly playful and friendly, sometimes to the point of clownish. He loves banter and teasing his closest friends, and he is also one for dishing out innuendo to see if anyone is listening to him. He is also rather flirtatious, which may be unbecoming of a king, but his excuse is his monstrous nature.

    There is a side to Ace that he suppresses as best he can, although occasionally it arises to the surface. Monster that he is, and with his life belonging to the demon king, he can become deadly violent, fiercely aggressive, and extremely dangerous and unforgiving. Fortunately that side of him rarely surfaces but when he is dealing with other monsters. Still, the blood of humans does indeed stain his hands, so do not make the mistake of assuming that he is tame.

    Bio:

    The King of Monsters in the human realm, he has lived through millenia in numerous forms--each time opposing the demon who desires to rule over all. He has been killed as many times as he has lived, but his soul remains tethered to the demon king. Born into life as a noble creature known as Phaeroh, he was transformed into a monster when his spirit was consumed by the Adephagos (the shapeless demon king itself). He was made to be a slave of the darkness, sent to lord over all monsters, and he was given the body of Baramos, a foul lizardic general that commanded monster armies to overrun the humans of the new world. When finally defeated by a heroic few, he became aware of himself again, and vowed to end the reign of the demon lord--a fact which resulted in his immediate termination.

    He was later reborn as the Zenith Dragon, under the watchful eye of King Zenith in the great skycastle. He resumed his efforts to save the human race and the planet below from the growing power of the all-consuming darkness, but was destroyed once again at the peak of his power. Every body he inhabited since was given to him by the evil that he hates the most, a gift from the demon to spite his very life. Aptly named for the fact that he has reincarnated many times, the incarnus also is able to evolve in a way unique from other monsters.

    He can change form at a whim, although it requires substantial energy, and cannot be done when he is weakened. He also can take the form of a human, when exposed to a unique artifact known as the Master Medallion.

    The incarnus--also known as Ace--strongly believes in saving the humans of the planet, regardless of the consequences. As a result, he will do anything for their greater good, no matter how many humans despise him for it.


    Character Name: Samuel Oak
    Gender: Male
    Sexual Orientation: Bisexual
    Kinks: Harbors an interest in teacher/student relationships, often with trainers that he mentors. In situations such as those, he adopts a dominant role. Prefers those who are younger than he is, with absolutely no interest whatsoever in females his age or older. Entertains a secret interest in relations with monsters, likely spurred by past experiences with Ace.
    Age: Mid 70s or low 80s. Nobody is quite certain, especially since he seems to have ceased aging. Nobody is sure of his secret to remaining healthy except for him and the incarnus.
    Skills/Occupation: Retired pokemon professor and trainer with extensive skills in research and teaching. Now seems apt to engage in physical fitness.
    Physical Description/Image:


    Alliance: Incarnus, although he often seems conflicted.

    Pokemon Team: As a retired trainer, he no longer owns any monsters, although Ace often calls Samuel his master.

    Personality: Although he prefers to keep to himself, Samuel is friendly, amiable, and a little goofy. He is well-loved by many, although now days he avoids the spotlight as much as possible. Even so, he still enjoys offering encouragement to trainers and doling out advice laced with lame puns and--occasionally--innuendo. He also has another--more perverted--side. And that is entirely the fault of the incarnus.

    While unlikely to be particularly forward in his interests, an attempt to seduce an apprentice is not unheard of. He also--secretly--finds his greatest pleasure in monsters. A fact which has left him with the demonic powers that be breathing down his neck.

    Bio:

    Though now an old man, the former professor seems to have discovered some means of maintaining his strength, appearance, and avoiding certain death. It is a well-guarded secret, however, and it seems that only he and Ace truly know what is keeping him around.

    Samuel is well known to the world as the "Pokemon Prof." and while he has since retired, he still seems to enjoy offering encouragement to young trainers.

    In his youth, he began as a trainer himself and quickly rose to the top with the help of the unique monster that he discovered along the way--the incarnus. The two of them formed an inseparable bond, which still remains today. However, for most of his life, Samuel made sure that Ace stayed out of the spotlight, as per the wishes of the incarnus himself. Even now, very few people know much about their history together, if anything.

    Eventually Samuel's interest in training waned, but he followed his dreams to become a scientist and a pokemon researcher. All the while keeping Ace's mission in the back of his mind. Frequently the pair clashed in their interests, and often Samuel attempted to abandon Ace in favor of his own love for monsters and interest in society's growth with them as the center. In the end, however, he knew that Ace was right, and though it is still very difficult for him, Samuel supports the incarnus and has made his own contributions to the mission against the demons that infest the earth.


    Character Name: Charity Oak
    Gender: Female
    Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
    Kinks: Although largely traditional in her interests, she has been known as willing to try new things.
    Age: 37
    Skills/Occupation: Pokemon Professor with extensive skills in research. Also a League Master of the Jhoto Region and a good trainer.
    Physical Description/Image:


    Alliance: Incarnus

    Pokemon Team: Owns a large number of monsters but currently favors the following: Galvantula, Ninetails, Umbreon, Leafeon, Nidoking, and Scyther

    Personality: Pleasant, hopeful, and keenly interested in learning, Charity is reasonably optimistic outwardly. Her greatest strengths are her sheer determination and strength of will. Despite her apparent confidence, however, she is often unsure of herself and struggles to maintain a brave facade.

    She can be engaging and amusingly sarcastic, but sometimes she can take it too far and wind up hurting someone's feelings. She is a capable leader when she has to be, but often finds herself wishing that she could simply be lazy and let someone else do the work for a change.

    Her greatest weakness is her frequent lonesomeness. Despite the fact that she likes to be independent and free, she often feels unfulfilled and lonely--a fact which can lead her to infidelity if and when her husband does not satisfy her desperate need for acceptance and affection.

    Bio:
    The heir to Samuel's throne as the renowned scientist of the Kanto region, this woman is actually Gary Oak's wife. The two have been married for some time, and have two children together--twins. They even have a grandchild, though they are both still relatively young in their late thirties. Blame it on the consequences of being sent out into the world at ten years old.

    Strangely enough, this woman boasts a bizarre history in the pokemon world. She began her life on another planet, perhaps even in an alternate dimension, growing up in a land free of monsters entirely. However, as a child she was lured into an inter-dimensional gate and pulled into a world unlike her own. Unhappy as she was, she sought to return from whence she came, but found herself becoming somewhat of an errand girl for Professor Oak. She did not know it at the time, but he was conditioning her to become an integral part of Ace's plan.

    She became a fairly good trainer and traveled the world. Inevitably she ran into Gary, and although they frequently did not get along, eventually a friendship budded and transformed into a romance. They soon became inseparable and together faced a mysterious entity that seemed to arise from nowhere, plaguing innocent people and towns and transforming them into unlivable, twisted shadows of what they once were. When they discovered the source of the problems--a dark and formless entity known only as missingo--they were forced to confront it. Unfortunately, in interacting with Charity it gained access to her home world, and the only way for her to prevent it from passing between the dimensions and destroying the home she once loved was to forfeit her title as a Champion and return to her world, sealing the portal behind her to trap missingno inside.

    Sadly, in doing so she had to leave behind her new husband and two infants in his care.

    Seven years later she came across a friend she once knew from the pokemon world and discovered that he had come back to retrieve her. Having been missing her life there, she did return and was reunited with her family. She was able to resume raising her children, although her life was far from charmed. She and Gary had grown apart, if only because of the time they'd not had together, and Gary was somewhat resentful. Even so, they remained together in an effort to regain what they once had. She became a trainer again and eventually became a league member. She now owns her own pokemon ranch and resides in a modern manor in the mountains overlooking Cerulean City.

    I'm definitely interested here. Is it possible to play characters who switch sides?

    Absolutely, you could easily create a character who began as a pokemon trainer/enthusiast and move over to Ace's point of view or vice versa. Also, there is plenty of potential with Canon characters to change sides as well, if you don't want to make an OC.

    If you need help making a character or their background story, I can help you with that also, though I prefer if you make most of the details about OC's yourself.

    cool. So how do pokemon enthusiasts who join ace function? I mean do they still battle using pokemon or do they pick up a new method of fighting?

    That will develop more as the story wears on. However, for the majority of the story, both sides will use pokemon. Ace himself is a monster, and he will also engage in battle. His ultimate goal is to steal pokemon from the trainers who won't side with him, and lead the trainers who will.

    Edit: To add to this answer, since I was in a hurry when I typed it out, let me clarify:

    Both sides will be using pokemon. One side will be using them to try to defend their use and existence in the human world, the other side will be using them to combat that. Basically both sides need to use them, otherwise the balance of power would lean only to the side that used them.

    Adding to that, since this is a somewhat more grim take on the pokemon world, we need to remember that these are monsters of tremendous power. They are entirely capable of killing one another or the humans. There won't be any "funny" uses of their power like in the cartoon. If a human is engulfed in flames, they get third degree burns. Also, humans will need to strategically recall their monsters, because if they let their monsters keep fighting after they are unable, there is always the possibility that their monster will die.

    Also, both sides may deem it necessary to adopt methods of fighting for themselves. Knives, guns, martial arts. It's all up for grabs.

    Note: I added the application forms. I'll be putting up my own character sheets shortly to provide an example of how they should look. I also invite questions about applying and character creation.

    Added my character sheets as examples in the section for applications. When applying for the rp, you may refer to these. Also, I updated the first post with additional information, as well as removing my characters from there so as not to be redundant.

    I'm tentatively interested in this. My main questions are:

    I only played Red and Blue, when they first came out, and lost interest in the franchise shortly after beating them. I only watched the first season of the cartoon. Is my lack of knowledge going to make playing difficult for me, or can I find a way to make it work (character has amnesia? Came from different world?) without it seeming cheap and corny?

    And: I noticed you mentioned Dragon Quest. How is that going to be factoring into things?

    Oh my God Shadow is that you?! Ly-Lunah here!

    Edit: If it isn't obvious I am totally interested in this because I so know your posting style!

    @ Karasu: Hey there. Yeah it's me (obv.) Be thinking of how you want to enter into the story if you really want to. Feel free to ask questions too.

    @TheHangedMan:
    I'm tentatively interested in this. My main questions are:

    I only played Red and Blue, when they first came out, and lost interest in the franchise shortly after beating them. I only watched the first season of the cartoon. Is my lack of knowledge going to make playing difficult for me, or can I find a way to make it work (character has amnesia? Came from different world?) without it seeming cheap and corny?

    And: I noticed you mentioned Dragon Quest. How is that going to be factoring into things?

    To answer your first question: Only a minimal knowledge of pokemon is required. As long as you enjoyed red and blue and can come up with your own character's story, you will do fine. After all, not everyone in the pokemon world can know everything about every monster, every region, or every other person in the world. Your knowledge of red and blue should be more than sufficient, especially if your character was born and raised in Kanto. The rest you'll learn as you go, and I'm more than willing to help if it becomes difficult. I doubt it will be a problem in any way though.

    In answer to your second question: The Dragon Quest Series factors in primarily as lore. If you know the series, you're aware of the conflict between a demon king who appears and reappears in many different forms throughout the centuries. In Dragon Quest, Monsters also play a rather large role in the story, so the pokemon world and the dragon quest lore tie together very well.

    As for how Dragon Quest factors into the current story--
    Really the only thing you need to know is that the incarnus is from Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker and that his master, the hero in DQM:J is --for the purposes of this story--Samuel Oak.

    You don't need to be a fan of dragon quest or even to have played it to enjoy the rp. But if you have played it, you'll have a deeper understanding of the history behind the story.

    Ahhh, very interesting. I loved the Dragon Quest Monster games! Sadly, I don't have them anymore. Lost them in a flood.  I might end up having to poke around on Ebay and seeing if I can find them again.

    I'm working on a character, then. I also like how you're tying the lore together.

    Would a martial artist that fights against Pokemon work, as a concept? Figuring, the dude just has some intensive training regimen.  I may also play as a monster. Not sure yet.

    If you would like to be a martial artist that fights against pokemon, that's fine. Bear in mind that since humans have no supernatural powers and relatively low defenses compared to monsters that their best strategy for survival when encountering a monster would either be weapons or--as you said-- an intensive training regimen that focuses on stealth, speed, and physical attack power.

    And, naturally, depending on how the story progresses, your character is likely to get help from other people, so at least he won't have to rely entirely on his own power. But having a martial artist on the team would be fantastic, because they can do things and access areas that regular people can't.

    Alright. And don't tell Viety I'm here. I don't want to hurt his feelings, because I'm still doing Paths Connected with him. It's just that he only posts once in a very long while, and since it's not his favorite thing to do I kinda wanted to explore this idea with people who might appreciate it a bit more.

    Plus I always think it's intriguing how the same base story can take different branches depending on how you approach it.

    Awesome, I got her message and replied back.

    Also, it would be cool to see you do a trainer. I assume you're familiar with the battle simulator that's sort of become a staple of this story? If not I probably need to set you up with it..... Not to mention give everybody else access to it to o.0

    I just figured you might know it already since you've been in my RPs before.

    Here's my character. It's a definite work in progress at the moment.


    Character Name: Alphonse Logare
    Gender: Male
    Sexual Orientation: Straight
    Kinks: He generally doesn't have much time in his busy life for sexual pursuits; if he isn't training or resting up, than he's on a mission.  However, being a rather liberal-minded person, he is open to perversion.
    Age: 25

    Skills/Occupation: Mercenary, he fights for those who can afford him. His skills include bare knuckle brawling, spear and staff fighting, unorthodox mixed martial arts (being one part trained martial artist, two parts street tough/brawler), high pain threshold, and a constitution that pushes the human limits. On a less combative note, he is skilled at cooking, marching, campaigning, weapon and armor maintenance, foraging and herbology.
     
    Physical Description/Image: Pictures of your character are optional but provide a good visual. If you cannot provide a picture, simply describe your character in detail. Eyes, hair, skin, clothes, height, etc.
    Alliance: Money. His allegiance can be bought, though he does maintain a certain code of conduct and will not undertake any job that he feels will cause him to have to break this code. [I may need to work some details on this out with you, SammyGirl]

    Pokemon Team: N/A

    Personality: Dedicated and loyal to whoever holds his contract. Despite this, he does have a certain amount of capriciousness. He is a martially oriented and motivated person, who respects strength and seeks to increase his own. Although having a well detailed code of conduct and morality that he ascribes to, he is first and foremost a utilitarian.

    Bio: Tell us a little bit about your character's past and how they got to where they are today.

    Sure thing. Ill see if I can put up the battle simulator tonight. If not tonight then tomorrow.

    Your character sounds absolutely enthralling. I'm very interested to learn more about him. Be sure to insert the bio and the description when you have the time.

    Other than that, I really like what you have so far, and the idea of him being for-hire is particularly fascinating, as he could change sides quite a lot depending on the highest bidder.

    I like bounty hunters <<;

    YAY! I'm so excited. Feel free to add to your character's history a little more too, if you like, but you're more than welcome to use my ideas as a base for your bio.

    If you would like to join, you're welcome to set up an application with your character, and once it's completely filled out, I can approve it. In the meantime, if you have any other pressing questions, be sure that you ask them so that I can answer them up front for you.
